Alfie Gannon was jailed for shooting a man after he was thrown out of a 10-year-old's birthday party in BromleyMet Police

A guman who shot a rival in the leg after storming out of a ten-year-old's birthday party in Bromley has been jailed - but not before he appeared in a police mug shot with his hands down his trousers.

Alfie Gannon, 21, became embroiled in a heated argument with a man at the party in May last year and threatened to kill him.

He was thrown out of the celebrations but returned hours later armed with a suspected semi-automatic pistol and shot a 32-year-old man he had asked to speak to, in front of the victim's seven-year-old stepson.

Gannon fled the scene before driving off in a purple Ford Fiesta, but was arrested in Kent in November following a police appeal, and subsequently charged.

He was sentenced to a total of seven and half years imprisonment at Croydon Crown Court for one count of GBH with intent and one count of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

Gannon had earlier pleaded guilty at the same court in March and had been remanded in custody until his sentencing.
